AIM HIGHER proudly partners with local Kiwanis Clubs to sponsor Aktion Clubs within our programs. Kiwanis Clubs sponsor many Service Leadership Projects (SLP) including K-Kids, Builders Club, Key Club, Circle K, and Aktion Club. Aktion Club is the only service club for adults with disabilities, with more than 12,000 members worldwide.
Aktion Club is supported at the district level and by the Kiwanis International Office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides programs, literature and opportunities to relate to individuals with disabilities from countries worldwide. Aktion Clubs draw members from various organizations that support individuals with disabilities, as well as other community programs.
AIM HIGHER currently sponsors Aktion Clubs at three of our programs.
Where development has no disability.
To develop competent, capable, caring leaders through the vehicle of service.
To provide adults living with disabilities an opportunity to develop initiative, leadership skills and to serve their communities.
- Character Building: The ability to the right thing, even when it might be the unpopular choice

Aktion Club Pledge:
I pledge on my honor to follow the Objects of Aktion Club.
To better my community, my country and myself.

To demonstrate loyalty to our community and nation.
And to encourage others to do the same
